Learn a new skill in Suffolk


Take a break in the heart of Suffolk and take up a new skill at the same time, from fly-fishing, cooking game, glass art and everything in between.

Learning a new skill is usually near the top of a list of New Year's resolutions, and what nicer way to do this than on a short break in a beautiful location. Take part in a cookery workshop at Helmingham Hall, near Stowmarket; sign up for art and wildlife courses at Flatford Mill, where the artist John Constable lived and painted some of his most famous pieces, or there's a whole range of one day courses offered at Assington Mill near Sudbury including fly-fishing, knitting, keeping chickens and more.

If learning something new sounds too energetic, what about a spot of pure indulgence instead? Stay at The Swan in medieval Lavenham and luxuriate in the brand new Weavers Spa or take an Invitation to View tour around an historic house.
